Do you find the monotony of fighting enemies over and over for fancy items frustrating? Do you have a bit of an obsessive compulsive need to explore every inch of a game you play? Most importantly, are you interested in a game that's fun and friendly for the entire family? 1000: Find 'Em All by Glu is a game all about exploration, not just in the virtual world, but also in the real world.

Find 'Em All is a simple title of exploration where your character wanders around the game world in order to find the 1000 items scattered throughout it. This is easily done as you tap or drag to walk around the world, converting it from dull greys to vivid colors finding packages as you go. But things don't stop there as you can also incorporate Google Maps to literally walk around your neighbourhood to collect even more items. This is a great incentive for exercise and even rewards commuters during long trips.

The game itself is a simple 2.5D game that uses a geometric-blocky cartoon style to represent the world and is not too dissimilar to a large Lego set. There are awards to be won for your exploration and the items collected come with amusing quotes, so there's plenty to enjoy, but to get the most out of the game you will need access to Google Maps.

Find 'Em All is a family friendly game that everyone can enjoy and help work on. Younger kids can easily spend hours exploring the huge game world and will even enjoy taking trips thanks to the GPS system.
